Transport for NSW is delivering safer and more reliable journeys on the South Coast by progressing the upgrade of the Princes Highway between Burrill Lake and Batemans Bay.
JUN 2021Co-design committee announced for highway upgrade
We are co-designing planning for the highway upgrade at Burrill Lake, including the southern connection of the Milton Ulladulla bypass, by establishing an independent committee of community stakeholders, residents, government agencies and Transport representatives. The committee will identify and recommend an option for the highway upgrade at Burrill Lake including the southern connection of the bypass. Once identified, a preferred option will be displayed to the wider community for feedback.
The co-design approach recognises Burrill Lake is unique and any future highway upgrade must balance the needs of all transport users alongside the qualities and amenities that makes Burrill Lake so special to locals, and appealing and accessible for visitors.

JUN 2021Princes Highway upgrade
We’re building a safer, more reliable, more efficient and better connected network. Watch our video to learn about the Princes Highway upgrade including the Milton Ulladulla bypass and the Burrill Lake Co-Design projects.
AECOM Australia Pty Ltd were recently appointed for the investigation and planning phase of the project, which will include reviewing existing data, carrying out additional studies and commencing strategic design work. A range of strategic options will be identified before finalising a preferred option which will be available for community display and feedback.
The Princes Highway is a critical link between Sydney and the Illawarra Region with the NSW South Coast down to the Victorian border. It provides vital connections between towns and regional centres and is an important freight link. The Princes Highway connects key east-west road corridors and is a significant route for inter-regional business, tourism and leisure travel.
A proposed upgrade on the Princes Highway between Burrill Lake and Batemans Bay would help transform communities, create better and more mobile regional centres, deliver a more resilient transport network, improve safety, ease traffic congestion and grow regional economies.
The upgrade would address the 86 crashes including 2 fatal crashes and 18 serious injury crashes on this section of highway in the five years from 2014 to 2018.
The strategic investigation and design phase of this project will include reviewing existing data, carrying out additional investigations and identifying a range of options. More details on the preferred option and timeframes for next steps will be shared as the project progresses.
The Burrill Lake Co-Design Committee (BLCC) was announced by Transport for NSW in June 2021, to give the community an important voice within the process of identifying and recommending options for the highway upgrade at Burrill Lake. The Committee will include community representatives, residents, stakeholder group representatives, business owners and other key stakeholders.
While the Committee is not a decision-making or regulatory body, the advice and recommendations of the Co-Design Committee will be incorporated into the strategic planning for the Burrill Lake upgrade made by the NSW Government to the maximum extent possible.
